Conservative City but I loved Osaka Castle.
Ancient temples and history.
Go here for neon lights and amazing food.
Osaka in 5 Days
I spent 5 days in Osaka and to be honest it was 3 days to long. There is a lot to see but Kyoto and Tokyo offered more of what I wanted. Osaka Castle was well worth it and I would recommend going just to see it.
Catch a flight from Honolulu to Osaka. The flights I found were more affordable. Once in Osaka it’s easy to use the trains to get around.
If you can afford it take AirAsia and buy a flat bed ticket, so worth the rest and sleep.
Day trip from Osaka to Nara
Allow more than 1 day in Nara.
Kyoto in 5 Days
Rent a bike to get around Kyoto. There is so much to see and a lot of walking. I averaged 6-12 miles of walking a day, so a bike is far easier.
Tokyo in 5 Days
Pace yourself! This town is huge. Don’t use taxi’s if you can help it, they’re expensive and can quickly us up your budget.
